Student Attitudes Regarding Harcum Learning Environment.
Blai, Boris, Jr.
In order to assess the attitudes of Harcum Junior College students in regard to education in general, the school curriculum, school resources, and school counseling, a questionnaire was administered to all Harcum students in the fall of 1975, with 258 anonymous respondents. Since respondents were enrolled in all programs except the pre-pharmacy curriculum, the sample was broadly representative of the attitudes prevalent among the current student body. The Assessment of Student Attitudes (ASA) was used as the measuring instrument. The instrument consists of 26 positive and negative statements to be rated on a five-point Likert scale (strongly agree to strongly disagree). Arrangement of the results by academic major of the respondents generates data which should be of interest to program directors. The composite responses for each of the four attitudinal subscales, assuming 100 percent as the ideal score, are: (1) Attitudes Toward Curriculum, 62 percent; (2) Attitudes Toward Education in General, 60 percent; (3) Attitudes Toward School Resources, 56 percent; (4) Attitudes Toward School Counseling, 48 percent.
